Recently found a sealed C-3PO's Rebel Rocket with the order form for the Micro offer. Still on the lookout for the original envelope.

Cheers mate.
You will have to get a loose one now. Just be careful...It does look a bit suss though, so make sure it still has the stickers applied. That thing could be mistaken for something else by the untrained eye :highly_amused:

Very nice proof!

Here's another item to add to "The Force" lightsaber focus that arrived today. This is an original press photo that was used in the Seattle Times newspaper. It is Dated June 6th 1983 and says it was taken at a South Center Toys R Us.

My final Power of the Force coin showed up today. With the recent acquisition of my Tusken Raider, FX-7, and Yak Face coins, I finish my set!

well , not quite mine , but my room mate picked it up at the last gun show we went too , so I get to take it to the range when ever I want , and I will talk him out of it eventually unless I can find one of my own first .





Sterling Mk 4 carbine ( the stormtrooper blaster ) only the second time I have seen one around . I would like to pick up a Mauser Broom Handle C-96 too ( the Han Solo blaster ) but I have heard they are not all that great to shoot , unless you like getting hit in the forehead with hot shell casings .... and the last few I have seen have either been really pricey ($2500) , or really pricey beaters ($900) .


This Sterling is functional , hence the longer barrel because of the collapsible stock ( it's considered a rifle ) but there are a bunch of parts kit's turning up recently . With the parts kits , it's generally a complete gun with a cut receiver so it's not functional , but still looks the same , add some wiper blades and a cheap sight and voilà .... stormtrooper blaster . I was thinking of picking one of those up because they have the shorter barrel like the blasters in the movie , but the prices are about the same , which really doesn't make sense to me .

Hey Peeps!

Yes! :) Recently, I picked up a Vintage Kenner 3 3/4 inch Luke Skywalker (X-Wing Pilot) figure (loose) but with very good paint-apps and his Blaster! Bought this off an online trader.

:) Overall - extremely happy with my vintage purchase!

Hey guys, I took a chance on this craigslist find - 32 mocs + 3 more after i got to the guys house I paid $1200.00. There's a few palitoys, a few maid in mexico, a few tri logos, and a few esb, I'm going to get several graded. The maccano is mint I'm sure a AFA85, any ideas what it's worth?

That's a nice find and a good mix of different cards. Was the seller a collector at one point?

The Meccano Jawa is one of the easiest to find, but I'd still estimate $150-$200 for an ungraded one. I'm by no means and expert on them, so hopefully you'll get other opinions, but that is what I've noticed in passing.

Here's my most recent score of some Droids and an Ewok prototype coins. It's amazing how the details seem to just pop out compared to the anodized produced versions.

Thanks Shawn, yea he was a big collector he says he's done. He has the first 21 mocs in super mint condition ungraded i guess i got everything else.

Those coins look awesome, i've never seen the c3p0 before, very cool. Where can i get those acrylic coin cases i'm trying to finish a set of the last 17?

I've got a bunch of new pick ups, but I'll post these three for now.

First is one of the rarer, round R2 Coasters from Empire Strikes Back. It was given out to the cast and crew after production wrapped. I've been trying to get one of these for a while and was happy to land one that's in such nice shape. Can't beat metallic blue! :)





Next is the more common, square cast and crew Coaster. I love the earlier ESB logo design.





Finally, I was lucky enough to get one of Josh Blake's custom-made models of the unproduced Micro Batcta Chamber. I don't generally go after customs or reproductions, but I was really struck by the quality of construction. It's more a work of art than a simple reproduction, and I really appreciate the care and skill that went into it. Plus, it's a perfect way to display unproduced Bacta Chamber figures! (Besides the Luke figure, I've also got a 2-1B... Still looking for the other two.)

You'd have to ask Josh, DS, but I believe he said the molds are shot. I think mine was a last minute, "wing-and-a-prayer" build up...

Killer additions Brian! That R2 coaster is a most excellent addition to the droid focus.

Good going every one. Nice to see a Wicket with a clear bubble. I remember that particular character being a pain to find with a clear bubble when i was hunting him.
